The park was purchased in 1969 using the National Park Service Land & Water Conservation Fund. Long time residents will remember the automobile salvage yard the occupied the lower end of the property for many years. The local United States Department of Agriculture Service Agency helped plan the initial renovation of the property.
In 1987 an improvement project, led by the Alexandria Jaycees and The Alexandria Eagles Club, provided new playground and picnic shelters for the park. Subsequent projects have improved the ballfields, landscape plantings, walkways, and parking lots.
On Memorial Day in 1999, the park was officially renamed Deputy Sheriff Curtis A Felt Memorial Park. Curt Felt was a young man from Alexandria who served as a peace officer in the Douglas County Sheriffs Department. He was killed while serving the Sheriff's Department on June 29, 1978.
The park is a popular spot for volleyball and softball games as well as group gatherings.
